Travel essentials: Kelly Hoppen packs for Tahiti

Travel essentials: Kelly Hoppen packs for Tahiti

Kelly Hoppen, the designer behind the chic interiors of Pearl Yachts, on her essentials for sailing in Tahiti

I first went to Tahiti 15 years ago and have been back about five times since. You can just sail for days going from atoll to atoll. Fakarava was one of my favourite places, in the middle of nowhere. Very magical. It’s very remote so you eat only on board.

Packing list

Luggage: Samsonite and Louis Vuitton cases

Swimwear: Melissa Odabash

Sunglasses: Oliver Peoples

For daytime: linen dresses and floral wraps

For the evening: Amanda Wakeley, Ganni, Marni and Alaia vintage – the most important thing is to be cool

Essential tech: headphones for running

Book: autobiographies

Gift for the host: a Kelly Hoppen Scent One candle – candles are always a great gift
